WEST BOYLSTON – This Tudor was built along with four other mansions in the city in the early 1900s. Today it is the last stand among them with many features that reflect the opulence of the time.
“When I walk into the foyer, I feel like I’m in a different time and imagine a butler coming out of the kitchen with a tray of tea,” said Muneeza Nasrullah of Muneeza Realty Group.
The 5,400-square-foot home at 154 Prospect St. has retained many of its original features such as the front door, picture frame moldings, maple floors, mahogany coffered ceilings, and wood-burning fireplaces.
The five-bed, seven-bath Tudor, on the market for $ 999,000, sits on nearly six acres with a 1,200-square-foot guest house, horse stables, and formal walking gardens.
“The gardens are one of my favorite features of this lovely Tudor,” said Nasrullah. “You are so well cared for; it is a pleasure to go through them. “
The two-story foyer leads into the former large ballroom and fireplace room. What is now known as the family room has retained its original coffered ceiling, wood-burning stove and chandelier.
Also on the first floor there is a modernized kitchen, a walk-in pantry, a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a guest room, an office and two winter gardens.
The landing on the second floor offers a large seating area and access to a balcony. The master bedroom on this level has a wood burning fireplace and views of Mount Wachusett. The private bathroom has a bathtub and a walk-in shower.
Three more bedrooms, each connected with a full bath, are also on the second floor.
The basement is a study with high ceilings and plumbing to add a prep kitchen and toilet.
The original coach house is now used as a 3-car garage. A barn from the 1960s houses six horse stalls, a tack room and a hayloft.
Nasrullah said the property is on a cul-de-sac and encompasses more than 30 acres of state-owned watershed.
The property also includes a detached, recently renovated 3 bedroom, 1 bath Cape style home suitable for in-laws or rental income.
